Set host name/IP

Shouldn't the hosts file include the local static IP address and computer name along with the loopback version? - KitchM 02:54, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Does anybody have more info on this? - Aaahaaap 11:22, 2 November 2009 (EST)
I sure wish someone did. - KitchM 18:43, 2 November 2009 (EST)

dhcpdc

The following section and statement are unclear:

"Other option

If for some reason dhcpcd eth0 fails, install dhclient (pacman -Sy dhclient) and use 'dhclient eth0' instead. "

Exactly how would one know that "dhcpcd eth0" failed? - KitchM 02:29, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Troubleshooting Ping

The section entitled Troubleshooting should probably include a section to address the problem of ping not working correctly. - KitchM 02:36, 1 June 2009 (EDT)

Needs cleanup

The hostname portion fails to explain whether or not the quotation marks around the name is required. The next example does not have them. Either way, it must be explained.

We are left with another question; is it listed in hosts under the loopback address only, or also included in the standard IP address?

Under IP Aliasing we are missing the explanation of what it is and why one would use it.

Regarding the TCP window scaling, what does the following phrase mean: "Or you can try to remove one of your RAM sticks (yes, sir)."

Let's clean this up, everyone.

Thanks.
